Diesel in the US

Unfortunately I live in Buffalo NY and am unable to purchase an Eos with the 2.0 Diesel engine in it.

As I understand it the drive-trains on these vehicles meet the US DOT emission requirements and are only unavailable based on a "marketing" decision. I was told by my dealer that the diesel will never be considered sports cars in the US market.

I am exploring what hoops I need to jump through to import a diesel Eos to the US.

Anyone out there have any information that could help? My dealer and VW USA don't seem at all interested in figuring this out.

Thanks all!

Thanks for the info! A lot of stuff there.

NEH - no prob not worth it. I do make my own bio-diesel so the cost would be a little more bearable. Even still.

But now I wonder if it is possible to have VW special order a diesel engine in a North American Eos. I know there are a few other differences besides gauges, like the bumper and spare tire.

Has anyone any experience with asking VW to do this?
